As a Free Speech absolutist I am not for banning any ad, or any standup comic or any film that mocks Hinduism or Hindu gods, but perhaps it is time for these shameless hypocrites and propagandists to append their creative work with the following statement, in bold:

কীভাবে সুরক্ষিত থাকবেন এই ভ্যারিয়্যান্টের হাত থেকে? জেনে নিন...

#omicorn #drkunalsarkar #covidvariant #kolkata #coronavirus #EiSamay

Mocking Hindu Gods is comedy?

60 people being murdered by burning to death is a JOKE?

India is great & Indians are tolerant so only your insensitive shows are getting canceled

Write better jokes, don’t destroy the delicate secular fabric of our nation🙏🙏
